News: Dragic will not participate with the Slovenian National Team during EuroBasket this summer, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
Impact: It was a joint decision between Dragic and Heat's president Pat Riley. The Slovenian point guard was leaning that way at the end of the regular season, and the time off will allow him to work on his game with his NBA teammates. His wife's pregnancy also played a factor, as the Dragic family is expecting a newborn child in August.
